This carte de visite type photograph from the 1860/70’s of John and Hannah Lovell  from Hampshire was in desperate need of restoration. The paper itself was very fragile, the image fading and the finish on the print had almost disintegrated. 
Happy to say, we were able to rescue it !
This one was a personal project of Steve’s, a photograph of his father during his national service in Cyprus.
This was the only surviving picture of him wearing a plaster cast and was in extremely poor condition.
We decided to crop the original borders as they were the most damaged part of the photograph and didn’t hold any important elements.
This one was a restoration for a client. The original image was scratched and faded. 
We were able to remove the damage, bring back the detail and as an extra touch, colourised the image.

Another client image, this one had faded considerably and was in serious danger of all of the details vanishing completely.

This client picture had considerable damage, it was very fragile and was only about  2 inches square.

We were able to remove the damage and enlarged it to about 6 inches for the client to frame.
